Melbourne Displays Now Closed

On Sunday 2 August, the Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced tighter lockdown measures for Victoria due to increasing COVID-19 cases. The stage 4 restrictions, which do apply to the construction industry, took effect at 11.59 pm on Wednesday 5 August 2020.

For Victorian residents, this means:

  • Our Metro Melbourne displays will be closed. You can still tour our award-winning homes virtually and book one-on-one appointments online with our sales consultants. You can visit https://porterdavis.com.au/ to tour all of our amazing display homes.
  • Our Geelong displays will be open by appointment only as per the regional stage 3 restrictions.
  • We can confirm that we will continue to site start new homes and continue to build homes already under construction with strict compliance to our already well established Covid-19 safety measures. The safety of our customers, team and suppliers will always be our highest priority.
  • Our Melbourne World of Style (WOS) showroom will remain closed to the public. Our customers who currently have a scheduled WOS appointment will be contacted by our team to organise an online appointment.

For our Queensland residents, it is business as usual, we will continue to conduct face-to-face appointments, and our display homes remain open.

For our Geelong and Queensland residents, it remains business as usual, we will continue to conduct appointments and our display homes remain open.

We are confident that we can work through this period together and continue to deliver the design, style and quality we are famous for.

Thank you for your understanding as we take the necessary steps to ensure we continue to keep our team and our customers safe.

Safety on site

Earlier this year, we put a number of new measures in place both in our office and onsite to help ensure the safety of our customers, team and suppliers. These measures now also include:

  • Mandatory masks for all construction personnel and any customers who visits our construction sites
  • Only essential customer meetings for Pre Completion Inspection (PCI) and Settlement will occur with one Porter Davis representative and one customer maximum on site
  • No more than one Porter Davis representative will be on site at any one time
  • No more than five workers (Contractors, sub-contractors or supplier representatives) are permitted to work on a single site at any one time
  • Strict hygiene rules on every site to ensure workers stay safe, including practicing social distancing, keeping 1.5m distance from each other, undertaking a specific COVID-19 Induction and avoiding physical contact where possible

Queensland Display now open

Following the recent ease in restrictions, our display homes in Queensland will be open from Saturday 16th May.

For our display homes, here are some of the steps we are taking:

  • 10 people will be allowed in our homes at a time
  • We have increased cleaning measures and have hand sanitiser available for every customer visiting.
  • While our team has been asked to not greet you with a handshake, you can be assured we will still provide you with the best service.
  • We are asking customers who are booking in appointments to answer a few questions in relation to any recent travel and their health.
  • We ask that any customers who have traveled overseas in the past 14 days, might be unwell or showing symptoms of COVID-19, please refrain from visiting display homes. If you are unable to make it to a display, our team can schedule an appointment online using the form below.

If you can’t make it to a display you can tour our award-winning display homes virtually and book in a one-on-one online appointment with our sales consultants. To book an appointment at our displays click here or to book an online appointment click here.
